About Us

Passion for Celebration

My name is Cara Priester.  I am a mother, wife, former teacher, certified event and wedding planner, and someone who has an incredible passion for celebrations!  I come from a big Italian family and my favorite memories are ones filled with music, laughter and of course, lots of food! I believe these are the moments, surrounded by family and friends, that we will never forget.  I'm excited to help you plan an event to remember forever!

Personalized Service

Our event planning services start with taking the time to get to know you and understand your vision.  Our personalized approach is what will make your event special and unique to you.   From updates about how the planning is going to managing the day of the event, we will support you the whole way through. 

Attention to Detail

We believe that the small details are what really set apart an event. From the beginning of the planning process, to the last minute, we will keep track of all the details so you can enjoy yourselves and have a truly memorable time!  Contact us today to discuss your many options.
